of the cuts into taxes. but at any rate, we think early this week we'll have a clear sense of getting this done t. may have to go back to the house if the senate does amend it, and then the house i think would quickly pass it. host: stick with us real quick. senate majority whip dick durbin was on fox news sunday yesterday talking about the continuing spending resolution to keep the government funded and timing on what. i want to play that now. >> this is all very important, i understand, but we have work to be done in just a short period of time. i urge my senate colleagues, let's be sparing in the amends. let's get the c.r. passed. we can do it and do it quickly this coming week. host: before we let you go, if they don't get this done this week railroad company we thinking members may come back from recess next week before the 27th? is there any talk of that? guest: there's been nothing that i've heard, and i mean, i just wouldn't -- i wouldn't be too speaked by this. i think they will get it done early. i think they'll know by today, we'll be able to rough out a schedule after we h
into the city's general fund. so, it is a very difficult threshold because generally because property taxes are single largest revenue source even in the worst years in this past recession, our property tax, the worst it was, it was a little bit over flat, just a little bit of an increase, less than 1%, but because property taxes is our largest revenue, it's infrequent that our revenues in one year would be less than the actual amount received in the prior year. the budget may drop to 50% of what's left in the rainy day reserve but no more than the shortfall of general day revenue and additional withdrawal allowance to up to 25% of the reserve is -- can be done by the san francisco unified school district and it's based on an inflation adjusted per pupil revenue, so as ms. howard said earlier, we're not sure, we're assuming the school district will be able to draw from the rainy day reserve but they're getting a bump from the reserve from the state, but this particular formula is quite generous, and therefore, it's likely that they will still not be up to the level that's required by formul
the sequester and in committee, democrats proposed to close those special interest tax loopholes that riddle our tax code, republicans said no. democrats proposed to offset unwise republican cuts to medical research like alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes research at n.i.h., republicans said no. democrats tried to cut the special interest spending in the tax code to offset republican cuts to students who rely on pell grants but republicans said no. mr. van hollen: i yield the gentleman another minute and a half. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. ms. castor: the democrats in the budget committee proposed to strengthen medicare and replace the republican plan to turn medicare into a voucher program. all it does is simply shift the cost tour families and older neighbors. mr. speaker, this republican budget is not consistent with american values. it is not fiscally responsible. it is a charade, it is a capitulation to the tea party. it does not serve us well in economic recovery and the ways we want to grow america. it's a plan for economic weakness. it's a receding vision of american greatness. in
their proposals on taxes. under their budget, the top rate is to be reduced from 39.6% to 25%. the a.m.t. will be repealed. the corporate tax rate will be cut from 35% to 25%. but you don't find one sill bell in the republican budget on how these tax cuts will be paid for. . they don't identify a single tax policy that will end. the republican budget would mean a huge tax cut for the very wealthy, several $100,000 a year and leave a nearly $6 trillion hole in the deficit that would lead to tax increases for middle-income families. that isn't balance. that is total imbalance. at the same time, republicans propose cutting $3.3 trillion from programs for people with low and moderate incomes, including hundreds of billions of dollars for food nutrition and medicaid programs. so i want to end by asking the republicans when they come and talk about their tax proposals to name a specific that they would address. it's not in the republican budget. name one, name two, name three. otherwise, it's worse than empty. the chair: the time of the gentleman has expired. the gentleman from wisconsin.
think about pat to marry -- patty mariposa proposal that includes spending cuts and tax increases. here are the numbers to call. here is the headline in the baltimore sun this morning. the budget plan -- the senate democratic plan released yesterday would raise taxes on the wealthy and some corporations -- we focused yesterday on the gop proposal and we will reflect on that a little today as we dig into one democrat tab on the table. here's the headline in the washington times. that's the direction the washington times is taking. we will look at a couple other headlines and how they are covering this story. the headline in the new york times says -- we will hear more about that this morning and that is coming into play as well. let's listen to senator patty murray, the head of the budget committee. she unveiled her 2014 budget plan yesterday afternoon. [video clip] >> are budget tackles this issue the way the american people have consistently said they want it done, with an equal mix of responsible spending cuts across the federal budget and new revenue raised by closing loopholes and c
these knuckleheads? orregard to taxing the rich cutting out loopholes, everybody in this country gets some form of entitlement in one shape or form. i don't understand why because i get a paycheck and somebody else makes their money through investments or a different way, why i am taxed more. if you earn money, you get taxed on it the same as everybody else. i do not agree with that at all. and i don't understand why we have to give tax subsidies to corporations that do not need it. why on earth does the oil company need our money? why does the agriculture business need our money? you are making enough money. cut out the tax loopholes and we can get out of this mess. host: we are covering the cpac conference and there are a number of ways you can watch and listen. depending on what the house yesterday, we will be live with the house this morning, once the house recesses, the cpac coverage can be seen on this network. you can also listen on c-span radio and wanted anytime on our website, c-span.org. also be a location to what some of the conferences that get underway this morning. some other com
ones is tax policy. and if mr. ryan's budget passes as you have suggested, then the top tax rate goes from 39% to 25%. which means that those who already have a lot will get a whole lot more. . i'm reminded of a quote by president roosevelt, and he id, it's -- this is to paraphrase. he said we're not measured by how much those who have get what we do who have little. this is where the great buying power of america should be in the bottom 99%, really the bottom 50% or 60%. i thank you for raising the tax policy in the ryan budget. the rest, because of the elimination of the debt actions, are going to see a stalling of their income. ms. norton: he does get balance within 10 years and look how he gets it. you still do not have like anything like a contribution, a real contribution, from those who have benefited the most from the tax cuts built on that chart. you are talking about it continues to come from the lowest part of the income stream -- income groups in the united states. i don't know when people will -- let the congress know they aren't going to take it anymore. the time has com

so far, everything we voted on has been anything but tax reform and pro-jobs legislation. the energy to power an american renaissance is right below our feet. west virginia is blessed with abundant natural resources, and more than that, an army of great men and women willing to extract it. pursuing environmental policy is based on unproven science is the wrong path -- policies based on unproven science is the wrong path. [applause]finally, at home i'm working to empower students by detailing the bureaucracy that has prohibited positive education reform for decades. revitalization is predicated on leadership. the societal problems dragging our country down are not new. they are magnified during economic downturn. as conservatives, we have to lead by example. my mother always told me, you can't stop through legislation. it has to come from the heart. the westery day in virginia legislature to impart the tenets of servitude as him to everyone who has been tasked to lead my great state. you'd be surprised how much have in common with people, even when they're on the other sid

were struggling under he harsh new austerity measures, the ryan plan would cut tax billers in most fortunate. last year the joint economic committee estimates that ryan's tax plan would lower taxes for millionaires by about $300,000 while raising taxes for individual taxpayers earning between $30,000 and $100,000 by over $4,000. how fair is that? at a time when income inequality is widely viewed as a very serious problem in our country, the ryan plan would make it worse. the gap between the haves and the have-nots would grow larger under the ryan plan. the ryan plan would ask tens of millions to bear additional burdens, pay additional taxes, face additional hardships. while it cut taxes for the fortunate few and preserved loopholes for big oil and spent an additional half million dollars on the military over the next 10 years. and at the end of a decade of paying -- of painful cuts, according to the nonpartisan tax policy center, the ryan budget would have managed to actually add $5.7 trillion to the deficit . a close look at the math makes it clear that the ryan budget can't recou
the budget. that would eliminate the deficit. on the senate side, we have accommodation of raising taxes by getting rid of unspecified tax loopholes and also cutting spending in areas like on subsidies and making changes to programs like medicare and medicaid. the democrats are pushing forward their plan. but right now there is no bipartisan plan to merge. in this slow and thoughtful thing, we will have to wait and see. >> i know you don't like the editorials from the publication "the wall street journal." this title is a key to the senate democrats play a role in the budget negotiations. beginning with these words, ring the church bells and set up the white smoke. senate democrats have released their first budget in four years. give patty murray credit for finally proposing something in public view. but after reading the document, we can say we can see why the democrats were so reluctant for so long. then the editorial spells out some specifics. >> they did not put forward a budget for warriors. we went through a crazy for years with the economy. we went to the financial crisis and the
of dollars of emergency crash and creditors impose onetime tax of 3% on all bank deposits under $130,000. >> going deep here. >> the tax could be closer to 10% on people who have over $640,000 in the bank. that's according to the "the wall street journal" this morning. people stood in long lines over the weekend to withdraw money before the policy went into effect and now russian president vladimir putin is calling the move, quote, unfair, unprofessional and dangerous. russian citizens make up the majority of billions of euros held in cypress bank. this is important. >> cypress. >> who cares about cyprus? >> come on, cyprus. are you telling me if somebody sneezes in cyprus we get a cold than on the nasdaq? >> tell us why. >> we have a cold on the nasdaq. the nasdaq is going down today. not too many people care about cyprus but a way the europeans have screwed up the bailout by getting the people to pay a part of the cost. you could have a run on the bank and europeans say why do i have my money in this bank? might be a tax on me next. it shows that europe is still a mess, that they h
of selective tax cuts that would lift all yachts, but leave many dinghies behind. our republican friends like to talk about making the hard choices, but what they propose here would make it much harder for millions of americans and also make things much easier for a fortunate few. that's their plan. now, specifically under this plan, he has this new goal of balancing the budget in 10 years. and to accomplish this, he slashes funding safety net programs that, for seniors, students, children, low-income families and women. the budget slashes food stamps, cuts funding for infrastructure investments, like high-speed rail. we are falling way behind the rest of the world. we need to invest in our infrastructure to stay competitive. and it does nothing for job creation or to help the unemployed. the ryan plan places medicare and really ends medicare as we know it by replacing it with a voucher system and replaces medicaid by making it a block grant to the states. these cuts hurt tense of millions of america -- tens of millions of americans who count on medicare for their health care coverage. don't
to defend including some of the tax increases that have gone into it effect in recent years and explain how he would also get rid of the president's health care reform act. he said we consider the tax increases to be federal law and that our question, it isn't the affordable care act federal law? he said, n,o this is something we want to continue fighting. democrats say that we've been through a supreme court challenge to an annual voted on this 30 times, why are we continuing to battle over something that democrats have no intention of appealing? host: the president is scheduled to release his budget a week of april 8. he is set to meet with house republicans today. give us the nature of these meetings. guest: the meeting today is the second of four meetings. it's part of his charm offensive stories trying to win over congressional support for a grand bargain. this has been an effort that was spurred by failing in the sequester a couple weeks ago. he has almost the opposite challenge of what he did yesterday when he met with senate democrats. they were pressing him on his willingness to ac
-increases debt, raises taxes and never balances. the top republican for budgetary issues blasted the democratic plan. >> now we know why senator reid did not want to bring up a budget. the plan from the democratic leadership is a failed plan for america. it does not alter the debt course of america, has no growth component to it. it spends more and taxes more. reporter: but these budget resolutions only require a simple majority so there are enough democrats to pass the democrats' budget resolution without republican votes needed. and so there you have republicans in the senate, all they can do is bash the plan. they cannot actually stop it. the house republicans are passing the paul ryan plan, and so then they'll go to conference and that where the heavy lifting will begin. >> shepard: the paul ripe plan has zero chance. >> it will pass the house and then they'll try to iron it out between the two plans. the paul ryan plan on its own would not be signed by president obama, would not pass the senate, burt it will pass the house. >> shepard: mike, thank you. meantime, something about our econo

now that they are working on does nothing more than raise taxes. they want more of your money, more money out of your paycheck. ask yourself does washington really need more of your money? we are $16 trillion in debt. we have deficits we can't even wrap our arms around, and they want more of your money. if you were a financial advisor that put you $1 million in debt and ripped through your college savings for your children and all of your checking account and said, just give me more money and we'll solve the problem, would you do it? absolutely not. more than jobs, though, we are also working to save medicare and social security, the commitments that we have made to the american people. so let's take a look here at the big picture. here's a budget breakdown of where we are at right now. look, your eyes are glazed over and we start talking about the trillions of dollars that we spend, but let's take a look at what you pay versus what you expect. this big blue part right here? that's on auto pilot. no adults have come to the table to talk about where we are at today and how to actuall
washington times" -- there are no sacred cows that calls for $1 trillion in new taxes. what's your takeaway? guest: well, what it does is also call for substantial cuts, but it deals with deficit reduction in a balanced way. what the republicans want to do is do deficit reduction simply by cutting, cutting, cutting. doing away with medicare as we know it. right now converting that into a voucher system which we very, very onerous for senior citizens, making devastating cuts in medicaid which means that millions of millions of american people and kids will lose their health insurance. massive cuts in education, in nutrition. basically every program that in the middle of a terrible recession working people depend upon would be done away with. what my view is -- i think the senate agrees what the committee is moving toward is to say, wait a second, we are seeing a middle class collapse, poverty at a high rate while the wealthiest and corporations are doing extraordinarily well. we are looking at record breaking profits for corporations and yet their effective tax rate is the lowest since 1972.
with your tax dollars. now more than 300,000 federal contractors are dodging paying their taxes if you can believe this story. a democratic lawmaker is going after those workers and she will join us next. bill: also this picture became a symbol of washington waste after taxpayers paid for a lavish las vegas conference. government workers attending there including this guy in the hot tub. wait until you hear what this federal agency is doing now. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. >> announcer: meet mary. she loves tohop online with her debit ca and so does bill, an identity thf who stole mary's identity, took over her bank accountand stole her hard-earned money. unfortunately, millions of ericans just like you learn misplaced information to wreak havoc on your life. this is identity theft and no one helps stop it better than
.85 trillion off the deficit over the next decade. it does so by raising nearly $1 trillion in new tax revenue, by cutting tax expenditures, and closing loopholes in the tax code and cutting $733 billion in spending. the remainder of the package is made up of savings on interest payments. murray's budget includes $275 billion in some health care cuts, less than the $400 billion the president previously put on the table and what he talked about in the state of the union. it includes $240 billion in defense cuts. senate democrats also propose $100 billion on new stimulus spending on infrastructure projects. >>> the budget includes no change to social security. the president reportedly faced some skepticism yesterday when he spoke to senate democrats about potential plans to switch to a, quote, chained cpi, which could lower the rate at which social security benefits are increased and cut the cost of the program in the long run. this morning, the liberal "huffington post" has a banner headline quoting senator tom harkin. quote, he said he hopes we reach some grand bargain. but what is in that gra
are the fundamental issues? we know ronald reagan spent much of his life trying to cut taxes for the average american. he was convinced that it was the man or woman on the street who knew how to spend their dollar more wisely than the federal government and he did all in his power to prove it by cutting taxes. governor jeb bush was in office he cut taxes on floridians by $20 billion. let's talk abut the size of government. ronald reagan was in the white house he dramatically reduce the rate of growth in federal spending and strove to reduce the size of the federal government. when governor bush was in office, he vetoed more than $2.3 billion in earmarks for higher state spending and reduce the size of the state government payroll a 13,000. when ronald reagan cut taxes and reduce the side of the government on the national level he did it with a purpose in mind. it was to spur the free market, create opportunity and provide incentives for businesses to grow. in his years in office over 20 million new jobs were created governor bush's state of florida is similar philosophy and economic or grams created

realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world int
